First LGBT Azerbaijani web site launched

The first website for local LGBT community was launched by the only LGBT-related NGO in Azerbaijan - “Gender & Development”. This NGO was founded on 15 March 2007 with the support of the Netherlands government and the Dutch gay group COC.

The aim of this web site is to provide local LGBT community with the LGBT-related news, educational materials, fight homophobia in Azeri society including media, and serve as a forum for LGBT Azerbaijani people.

Among upcoming plans of the “Gender & Development” NGO is to publish LGBT magazine.

Web site will be available in three languages - Azeri, Russian, and English.

Very welcome and long-awaited addition to LGBT-related resources in the South Caucasus. Will keep an eye on it.

Thanks to (and 1st News Azerbaijan) for disseminating this info. Btw, is one of my favourite Armenian web sites. Highly recommend it.
